    Quilterlois: I am so glad you got the snow on the eastern side of the state: Over here in western side : we only got frost !LOL ... I'll take that ! LOL
    Called my daughter who lives over on that side and she said it was snowing too, a friend who lives over there called me as well to tell me it was snowing and she was just outside taking pictures of it as she never knew she could take pictures of the snow (amazing what happens when one googles/bings things eh LOL)...
    Bless you all's pee picking hearts that you all got SNOW... and I didn't
    When Life brings big winds of change that almost blows you over.Hang on tight and Believe.

    yep, snow is possible here by the weekend too but only because of the "perfect storm" brewing off the east coast now. prayers for the east coast, jamaica and cuba who it looks like will see 100 mph winds.

    Just read that Hurricane Sandy may hit just before Halloween.
    If she get a blast of cold air from Canada she will hit around
    Delaware and everyone above on the North East coast will
    get SNOW.

    Glad I am in the South.

    I just watched the WC and I didnt hear anything about SNOW for us but they did say extremley high winds and millions will be without power....the storm surge will be another concern for those on the coast. I am glad we are inland but the power outages have me concerned especially with the temps dropping like they are predicting !

    Here in Maryland, we are doing the same thing, but we are preparing for Hurricane Sandy. It is down rigging week end
    here in Chestertown, big festival planned. We are expecting many of the very old ships from around the world here in port.
    Last year we had gale force winds that canceled part of it, including the Parade of Ships. Please pray for our power
    grids and trees.

    Barri1, you'd best batten down the hatches as the east coast (north of maryland) is expected to get a "Franken-storm" starting later this weekend and lasting for days, well into next week. This *could* be pretty serious. Hurricane, along with eastern moving storm, along with cold front from Canada, along with full moon affecting tides to create the perfect storm scenario. Best for all of us to follow the weather channel regularly for the next 72 hours.

    Well my Friend,

    You better start paying attention cause Hurricane Sandy is on her way. She is set to arrive around Halloween.

    Say Hi to her for me.

    They are saying Hurricane Sandy could cause snow in the mid Atlantic next week. Not looking forward to that but getting ready this weekend. Take care.

    We've had snow here in Lumby British Columbia Canada, but it hasn't stuck around. Our local ski hill is sure looking white.

    Depends on where in the PNW ChasingHawk is... If she's on the eastern side of the state, or at a higher elevation, she very well could get a lot of snow. I live in the Portland Metro area, which is nestled in a valley, and it is very temperate here - snow that sticks is rare.

    "They" are saying we're supposed to have a very warm and very wet winter, but I'm wondering. There have been lots of bizarre sightings of wildlife in urban/suburban areas, such as a cougar and multiple bears. Makes me wonder what they know that we don't.

    I have now been watching the storm info on the WC, no mention of SNOW for us and only a possibility of it west of our area and only if the cold air mass does dip down. What they are warnign us about is the high winds and rain 3-5 inches !!!

    Our house is ready...
    the hoses are put up
    the dog's water buckets are plugged in
    the dog's heater (those ones that look like the old radiator heaters but filled with oil)
    the trucks have antifreeze and de-icer in the windshield washer container
    And the survival packs are stowed away in the trucks.
    propane bottles and heaters are in the garage along with a propane stove.
    and most important a small generator is on standby[/QUOTE]

    Here in the Sunshine State, we prepare for different disasters, and we are thankful "Sandy" is passing us by. I forget just how much work preparing for winter is. But I do miss snow (sorry, Coyote, I used that four-letter word). Enjoy it for me. Non-stop sun gets boring.

    We live at the foothills of the Cascades on the Eastern side of that mountain range. Due to the high mountain known as Mt. Bachelor, we get blasted pretty good with winter weather. Our first year here we got a couple of feet of snow in the yard, the next year......5-6 feet!! So we have learned to get the property ready in October cause after that we may not get the chance. Our neighbor plows our driveway and the cul-de-sac. Since gas prices are through the roof lately we stock up on groceries and such so if anything bad happens were prepared. And we don't have to leave the house unless we get restless or I run out of quilting supplies......lol

    Last time I lived in Florida (Ft. Lauderdale area) was just before Hurricane Andrew hit. It's lovely down there, but I don't miss the humidity, mosquitoes and those flying palmetto bugs!
